That is all sounding like really good signs to me!!! I also said the same thing in this exact thread 'I think that i am out, i've been having af cramps so bad that i've needed to take painkillers' it was a bit early for AF though. Biggrin

Got a BFN. I'm only 9dpo though so I will test again in a couple days if AF hasn't showed and/or temp stays above coverline.

Hi Ladies - I just wanted to join the convo. I'm only 7 DPO, so prob won't test until next weekend. Last night DH & I were talking about when I should test, and he said that I should wait until AF doesn't show...but I explained I'm not really sure when that will be since I usually have 24-26 days/cycle, but last month it was 31! (I started taking supplements to lengthen LP) He said I should wait 2 weeks to test (from expected AF, if I don't get it) HA!! 2 weeks!!! wow, guess he doesn't understand the obsession w/ POAS! I told him I can barely wait 1 day!! Plus on the weekends I usually have some wine if we go out, so I don't want to be drinking if I am indeed PG!

I started experiencing cramping on my right side (like where my ovary is) about 5 DPO and comes and goes since then. Its like a dull sensation.....hoping this is a good sign!!!

Good luck to all you ladies!!! Smile

I'm sorry kate! I hope Monday will bring a BFP! However, it looks like you could have had an implantation dip on CD23, they say that it usually takes 3 days after implantation to get a positive.

Kim, your chart is still looking so good too! What was the open circle for 9DPO?

I marked sleep deprived. I was up with the twins from 12-130, so I did get a block before temp time but .... I didn't sleep well. I kept tossing and turning and felt like I couldn't fall asleep?

Thermometer possibly broken.....true story! I found another one I had in my medicine cabinet and they gave a different reading.......... so......I don't really want to change it midcycle unless it's not definitely broken but that's just annoying because now I don't really know what's going on in there lol

Yikes, that is NO good. How will you figure out if it is broken or not?

I'm not very good at explaining, but I found this:

Is a Triphasic Chart a Reliable Early Pregnancy Sign?

FertilityFriend.com, a free fertility charting online software company, did an informal analysis of the BBT charts on their site, to see if a triphasic pattern might indicate pregnancy. This was by no means a scientific study, but the results are still interesting to consider.

In their informal analysis, they considered a triphasic pattern to be a second, significant upward shift in temperature of at least 0.3 F, occurring at least 7 days after ovulation.

After analyzing almost 150,000 BBT charts, they found that 12% of all pregnancy charts showed a triphasic pattern. When looking at non-pregnancy charts, they found that only 5% of charts showed a triphasic pattern. So, based on this data, you have about three times more of a chance of being pregnant with a triphastic chart, than without.

Michelle-- Nice temp rise!!!

Mandy- Thanks!!! Crossing my fingers. My chart is so funky though. I think its cause I sleep during the day (from working nights) and it adds so much variability. How are you feeling btw? I never heard about your beta results? Or maybe I missed that post??

Sarah-- you got to get a new thermometer fast...so we can stalk you!!! Smile

Just took my temp with both therms at same time. The one that may be broken was 97.18 and the other was 97.6, For 12 noon, doesn't the higher number sound more feasible?

Sarah - I would *think* the higher one would be more feasible. But I think you should get a new bbt, stat! Biggrin

Kate - When I saw my temp this morning I figured I would test with it being up but of course it was a negative. However I am feeling so nauseated this morning :S if this isn't pregnancy than what in the world will my symptoms be when I AM pregnant? lol

Kim - I'm thinking a test is necessary for my stalking pleasure Wink

And yup got the results on Thursday evening my levels are rising appropriately Smile yay! I go for a scan in a couple of weeks time Biggrin

Kim- I so cant wait for you to test!!! Blum 3

Michelle- It's nice to see your temp shoot back up today!! good sign maybe? Sorry about your BFN but it is still really early!!

Congrats Kim! I actually got lines that look just like that this morning at CD27 as well. I know what you mean about them being so faint that you are scared to believe it. I am going to try and hold out and test again Thursday morning. If I get darker lines then I'll get really excited. Hope this is the real deal for both of us Smile

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I am just in disbelief. I guess this means Saturdays test was a light BFP. WOOPEE
